Technology-enabled learning and teaching, ESL learners, language learning and teaching


The diffusion of technologies in language teaching and learning is undeniably inevitable with the rapid technology succumbing both the language educators and learners. Educators have to bow in to these changes and take up the enthusiasm of being a “technophile, much to the likings of the language learners of this digital age. With the advent of Web 2.0, podcasts,vodcasts , virtual learning environment and many more, these pedagogical tools are perceived as technology-enablers in enhancing the process of language teaching and learning. This paper attempts to gage the interest or trends of the English as Second Language (ESL) learners in defining their preferences of the technology-enablers in the process of language learning especially outside the formal classrooms. As such, a survey was carried out on a group of engineering students to gage their preferences and tendencies towards enhancing and propagating technology- enabled language learning and teaching tools in and beyond the language classes
